DRIVE ELECTRIC PA COALITION
The DEP Energy Programs Office and DOE Clean Cities organizations began collaborating in 2016 with stakeholders statewide in a planning process intended to increase the acceptance and adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) by state government agencies, local governments, businesses, industry, and the general public in Pennsylvania. The Coalition identified barriers to EV use in Pennsylvania and the most effective ways to overcome them. The result was the Pennsylvania EV Roadmap, and it’s counterpart, the 2021 Update. The Coalition meets quarterly is chaired by the DEP. Both EPACT and PRCC support DEPA through education and promotional opportunities and run local chapters in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
For consumer drivers, state incentives through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Alternative Fuel Incentive Grant (AFIG) and Driving PA Forward, along with federal tax credit programs are accelerating the transition to cleaner transportation here in Pennsylvania. Additionally, some electric utilities offer EV rebates, so be sure to check with your local provider. Information for fleet incentives can be found here.
